Elizabeth’s Head to Toe
Birmingham, Mich.
Grade: A

Ah, Elizabeth.  LOVE her.  Elizabeth has a quaint little spa right below Red Salon in downtown Birmingham.  There’s been many days where I walked in feeling blah and walked out feeling fabulously relaxed.  Elizabeth can make you feel beautiful from head to toe. (I know… I sound like ad, but it’s the truth.)  Whether you’re looking for a facial, a massage or a pedi – It’s a magical place.  Really it is.  Some of you may know Elizabeth from Touch Spa.  Well, it’s in the same place, different name, and now one single owner who’s following her dream.  (LOVE that about her… and her old partner.  Both of whom are following their own dreams.) 

Choosing Elizabeth for my wedding make-up was a no-brainer.  First, she’s been doing my arch for the last seven years. (I lack all talent when it comes to the brows)  She’s seen my everyday look and I knew she wasn’t going to “paint” me up to look like someone I didn’t believe myself to be.  And that was important for me.  I wanted to be comfortable with my look.   Second, she’s super talented.   And she’s honest.  If it won’t work for you, she’ll tell you.   And lastly, she can do foundation like no one’s business and it lasts all. night. long.  No lie.  No touch-ups for me.  Not once.  Except for the lips.  (When you marry, you seem to smack your lips all over your new hubby!)

Let me tell you, I actually dreaded my hair and make-up trial.  Why?  Because I have never been able to convey what I wanted in a way that the artist was able to capture it.  Well, Elizabeth did me up and I felt BEAUTIFUL.  And, I was worried that I wouldn’t feel beautiful and feel like myself on my wedding day.  Though, I do admit, I did blend in my make-up a bit.  (sorry E)

Oh, and I wanted to mention that for my make-up trial I went with a purple palatte.  But after looking at the pics I decided to go with a smoky charcoal look and Elizabeth nailed it (without a trial run).

Anyway, there are very few wedding vendors that I didn’t comparison shop  because it doesn’t always come down to the best price when it comes to hair, make-up and photography.  Don’t do it ladies!  If you have to splurge, do it on your make-up!  And, really, Elizabeth is quite reasonable.

You can book Elizabeth in the salon or she will travel to you.  So, if you’re looking for someone to capture the beautiful person you can be on your wedding day, check out Elizabeth.  I LOVE her.

Tell her I sent you.

About Me

I love my guy. I love my town. I could have a torrid affair with every cake, cookie and cupcake I come across. I love sharing a good bottle wine with good people! And, I truly enjoy blogging about wedding finds. Which is why...
